Environmental Communication

Providing Environmental Information Online and through Corporate Publications

Since 1998, Mitsubishi Electric has continuously reported on its environmental objectives and achievements through a combination of detailed data and case studies, both online and through corporate publications. We also run a site aimed at elementary school students, including the Eco Changes Lab with information about our Eco Changes initiative, where children can enjoy learning about environmental issues through comics and games.

Environmental Exhibitions

Eco-Products 2017 (Japan)

Eco-Projects 2017, known as the Exhibition on the Future of Environment and Energy, was held in Tokyo, Japan at Tokyo Big Site on 7-9 December 2017 (Thursday-Saturday). This annual exhibition provides insights into the environment and lifestyles. In fiscal 2018, 616 corporations and organizations took part.

At Eco-Products 2017, Mitsubishi Electric exhibited cutting-edge energy-related technologies and products under the theme of "Eco-Life Starting at Home – Mitsubishi Electric’s Eco Changes." The focus of the exhibition was on our smart home solution ENEDIA—a concept for realizing zero energy homes through generating and storing power via a photovoltaic power generation system and using electricity more efficiently. In addition, various ecological technologies to ensure the safety, security and comfort of social infrastructure for communities, such as water and electricity, were presented. Our aim was to clearly communicate our advanced technologies and products that are contributing to the creation of an affluent society and achieving SDGs* in a wide range of areas, from home to outer space. We proposed a sensible and comfortable eco-life for all citizens from the perspective of a Group aiming to becoming a global, leading green company.
